Deep-sea Port for Myanmar

A deep-sea port is planned for Kyaukphyu, in the western coastal Rakhine state, to

facilitate trade between Myanmar and its neighboring countries. The planned port

will serve as a transit trade center for goods destined for Chittagong, Yangon and

Calcutta. Kyaukphyu is currently capable of accommodating 4000 TEU container vessels,

and is located on a proposed road link between southwestern China's Yunnan province

and Myanmar's Sittwe. Experts said once the 2000km road is completed, Myanmar will

benefit from increased trade with China and job opportunities.
